The Trope Tank

The Trope Tank is a lab/studio developing “new poetic practices and new understandings of digital media by focusing on the material, formal, and historical aspects of computation and language.” The Trope Tank “is a community, a set of projects and explorations, and two places that are contexts for collaborative research, teaching, and artistic practice. These places are at MIT and in New York City”

The Massachusetts Institute of Technology Trope Tank is a Comparative Media Studies/Writing research group.

The NY Trope Tank is both “a small workspace, an audiovisual cart, and a collection of computer-generated literary books” and a collaborative effort with work happening outside of NYC.

The Trope Tank is a project of founder and director Nick Montfort. Visit his website and The Trope Tank for links to related labs,, studios, and projects.
